Underwater glue?

My Aquarium has sprung a leak and it appears to be coming from the underside on one of my corners. I was going to try and fix it with some underwater glue but thought I better check first before I try it. Will this in any way harm my fish or inverts? It is made by Mr. Sticky and is made with Bisphenol.

If your tank is leaking the only way to fix it is to empty the tank and re silicone it. Underwater glue will not work to stop a leak.

underwater glue will work, just make sure u do it well..
should be alright for ur fish if it's aquarium safe..
I use Genkem...
I've even heard of people putting it on Hole in The head to heal it up...
although i wouldn't recommend that.
